Peverley back to Boston for testing
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Rich Peverley has left the team and traveled back to Boston for testing on his right knee.

Peverley injured his knee in the third period of Wednesday's game against the Canadiens when he collided with Habs blueliner Hal Gill. He left the game and did not return. He is not expected to be available for Friday night's game against the Jets, with Josh Hennessy likely to play in his place.

The versatile Peverley had been playing on the team's top line in place of the concussed Nathan Horton.

Source: Sox sign former Pirate Ohlendorf

FORT MYERS -- An industry source has confirmed to WEEI.com that the Red Sox have signed veteran right-hander Ross Ohlendorf to a minor-league contract. The deal calls for Ohlendorf to make $900,000 if he is added to the major league roster. The right-hander does have an option remaining, and he is not eligible for free agency (assuming he is added to the major league roster) until after the 2014 season.

Ohlendorf had an 8.15 ERA in eight appearances (all starts) with the Pirates in 2011 and was released by Pittsburgh after the season. The 29-year-old Ohlendorf, a Princeton graduate, had his best season with the Pirates in 2009, winning 11 games with a 3.92 ERA in 29 starts. (To see his complete career statistics, click here.)

Peter Gammons was first to report the deal between the Sox and...

Mashup: Polian says Moss 'reached the end'

Former Colts president Bill Polian weighed in on the Randy Moss situation, and his analysis makes it appear that Moss will have a tough time finding a team willing to give him a shot to return to the NFL.

Speaking on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Polian said Moss looked done when he was with the Titans in 2010, following his trade from the Patriots and subsequent release by the Vikings the same season.

“It was pretty clear he had lost a fair amount of speed and flexibility,” Polian said. “He was not the same player he was three or four years earlier during his heyday in New England. Since his repertoire of routes was always limited -- he was essentially a deep receiver his entire career -- losing a step can really hurt your effectiveness.”

Added Polian: “I just view it as a guy who was a great player, who obviously had some baggage throughout his career but had a nice run at New England, who sort of reached the end as...

Seguin, Bruins beat Habs in shootout
By: DJ Bean

Tyler Seguin scored the only goal in a shootout as the Bruins defeated the Canadiens, 4-3, Wednesday night at Bell Centre. 

The Bruins blew a two-goal lead in the third period, surrendering goals to Max Pacioretty and Erik Cole to tie the game after the B's had led, 3-1. They had only two shots on goal in the second period, but bounced back with a strong effort in overtime before Tim Thomas blanked the Habs in the shootout. Thomas is now a perfect 5-0 in shootouts this season. 
 
The Bruins first got on the board with Andrew Ference's fifth goal of the season, which set a new career high for the veteran defenseman. Mathieu Darche tied the game for the Habs with a shorthanded goal early in the second period, but masterful work from Benoit Pouliot on Chris Campoli gave the B's the lead back. Patrice Bergeron added to the lead with a power-play goal.
 
Brad Marchand could be getting a call...

Celtics stuck in low gear, lose to Pistons

In one of their worst performances of the season, the Celtics blew a winnable game and lost to the lowly Pistons, 98-88 at TD Garden.

Rajon Rondo scored a career-high 35 points and for the first time in his career he has scored 30+ points in consecutive games. But that was small consolation for the Celtics who missed 13 free throws.

Kevin Garnett missed his first game of the season with a strained hip flexor. His absence was felt on the defensive end as the Pistons shot 47 percent and center Greg Monroe had little trouble scoring 22 points on 11-for-14 shooting. Ben Gordon also had 22 points off the bench and scored 12 points in the fourth quarter.

Of the veteran stars who did play, Paul Pierce scored just two points in the first three quarters and Ray Allen didn't make his first shot from the floor until the final minute of action. Chris Wilcox did have 17 points and nine rebounds starting in place of Garnett.

The Celtics head to...
